N.Y. Man Allegedly Told Air France Ticket Agent He Had Bomb in Bag

A New York man, claiming his name was "bin Laden," reportedly told an Air France ticket agent Friday that he had a bomb in his bag. 

"My name is bin Laden, and I have a bomb in my bag."

A New York man with a thin build and gray beard uttered those ominous words to an Air France ticket agent at John F. Kennedy Airport on Friday night -- but it took dawdling security screeners 40 minutes before they finally called cops, furious law enforcement sources told The Post on Tuesday.

By then, the luggage belonging to boozed-up suspect Christian Boncorps, 61, was already aboard a Paris-bound jet that he had planned to get on, the sources said.

The incident began around 10:20 p.m. when Boncorps allegedly showed up drunk at the Air France ticket counter to get his boarding pass, sources said.

An Air France reservation clerk asked Boncorps what he had in his bag, thinking he might be trying to smuggle more booze aboard, one source said.

That’s when the irked Boncorps made his comment about the now-dead terror chief Usama bin  Laden, the source said.
